Hannah Gadsby

Australian comedian Gadsby is holds a ‘100 per cent fresh’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes for Nannette with the critics census stating: “Hannah Gadsby: Nanette brilliantly moves modern comedy into nakedly honest new territory, pivoting from dry humor to raw, powerful storytelling.”

Nanette also snagged Gadsby a Peabody Award - these awards are designed to “recognize when storytelling is done well; when stories matter.”

Gasby’s website says: “Hannah found her voice with Nanette, and with Douglas she plans to use it.

The stand-up stage has been Hannah’s home for more than a decade, and the last couple of years have given her a few very new ideas to think and talk about in her brand new show.”
